[DML] Re: Charging Problems


My $1 bets that it's a chafed or loose wire making intermittent 
contact with something it should, like ground for instance.  Were it 
my car, I'd drive around with any fuses I could get away with removed 
one at a time, to try to find out which circuit it's in, starting 
with the one you're having trouble with.

Neato problem.  It sounds dreadful.  Good luck.
